** There's Lili's full name (Lilith), an explicit prophecy that she will end the world, and her entire character arc has her confronting an ever-escalating series of barriers that she must penetrate to reach her goals.
** There are a lot of references to various hand and arm tropes, mostly involving Vivi. There's her personal interests (gadgets) and chosen career (thief), a nightmare in which losing a hand figures prominently, a childhood incident when she did witness someone losing a hand, an encounter with a villager who has severely injured her forearm with a hedge cutter, and even an [[TheseHandsHaveKilled These Hands Have (almost) Killed]] moment after her attempted assassination of Eldor (she actually did managed to kill Sylas, though she doesn't know it.) There's also the prison official who loses a hand to a PortalCut in Lili's escape attempt. All of this implies that someone's hand or hands (most likely Vivi's) may be a key to the climax.
